The promised renaissance of rural America has been a long time coming, and the time is now. With nearly 60 million Americans living in rural communities and facing unique challenges, tremendous opportunities exist to grow rural economies while simultaneously benefiting the environment through investment and collaboration.
Rural America, as stewards of our land and food, is closely tied to our environment. These communities are fertile grounds for businesses that offer innovative solutions to climate change and other environmental challenges. Rural areas have a crucial role to play in addressing global environmental issues.
RuralWorks believes there is a path forward. We envision a future where Rural America thrives while maintaining a sustainable environment. We believe that by scaling rural businesses that are committed to protecting the environment, we can create a positive impact on local communities and the planet as a whole. The time to invest in these opportunities and build a more sustainable future is now.
RuralWorks provides integrated capital to growth-oriented businesses operating in rural communities that are doing their part to protect our planet and generate community wealth and economic resilience. By creatively engaging a range of local and national resources and partners, RuralWorks aligns its investments with sustainable practices while creating value and outcomes rooted in local people, places and businesses.
When investing in a local business, RuralWorks is making an investment in the local community that surrounds it, bringing fresh sources of relevant experience, access to extensive networks of resources, and, of course, access to much needed equity capital. Engaging and supporting local businesses and the communities that surround them is our blueprint for a rural renaissance, a blueprint designed to grow businesses, build economic mobility and generate community wealth and resilience.
